Jamaica Wedding Tips

Recommended Posts

Think twice before booking your wedding at any resort in Jamaica......



My husband and I have been to Jamaica a total of six times it is our favorite place on earth so why not get married there!!!woot.gif


We booked our trip and planned on getting married in Jamaica we are both divorced and did not want a overdone wedding.

Upon already booking the resort with our best man and maid of honor, we were told that the hotel could not accomodate us.




As any bride I was furious and did not know what to do so began frantically searching options ( the trip is non refundable at this point)

I went as far as offering the wedding cordinator at the resort extra money, a large tip and also asked to be put on a cancelation list.

After begging and pleading I felt as if it was hopeless and knew that it was not going to happen at the resort.

So why waste precious time right??? BangHead.gif


I read review after review searched and searched and stumbled across ...

Dawn from Jamaica Elegant Weddings (www.jamaicaelegantweddings.com)


Dawn was a hero in our eyes she had the best prices was willing to add or subtract anything you wanted from her wedding packages....everything was "no problem".  She was available always via e-mail or phone to answer any questions and put your mind at ease, Dawn filled our paperwork, arranged for transportation took care of the officant and photographe;  but above all dealt with the crazy bride in such a calm and professional manner.  


If I can give one piece of advice to any bride.....go with Dawn@ Jamaica Elegent Weddings.


The resorts will tell you that your wedding is free or it is a small fee but this is totally false they will nickel and dime you to death.

We witnessed several weddings the week we were there and resort weddings are nowhere near as nice as our wedding was nor did you get the attention to detail for less cost.



The photographer Nicholas provided by Dawn was THE BEST.... www.nicholashutchinson.com


We had a total of 12 photos included in our package Nick took almost 200 photos that all came out so beautiful we could not choose just twelve.....we got them all for such a unbeliveable price.  There is no place you will find a better deal with such excellent quality.   



We had the wedding that totally surpassed our dreams and expectations thank you again to....

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
